Ruth Kadiri Interview

Has it always been your dream to become an actress?
Ruth Kadiri: My passion for acting started in the church, and that is why I see my career as an obligation to God. I started writing in my secondary school days before I began to attend auditions for movie roles. I can still remember my first audition; it was at the Wale Adenuga Studios where I later met a friend, Victor Eze, who had a writing school. I attended school and graduated.
I wrote my first script, ‘Wild and Dirty,’ and after that, I continued to write some more till I started getting roles in movies that adapted my own scripts. That was how acting started for me. I had my first major breakthrough when I starred in, ‘Boy’s Cot,’ which featured acts like Jim Iyke, Nonso Diobi, Mike Ezerouye, and Uche Jombo. It was a very great start for me and since then, I have never looked back.
What were some of the challenges you faced while building your career?
Ruth Kadiri: Like every other profession, starting up always has its challenges. However, I was determined and focused. For me, it was simply about making it in life and being successful. So I had to cross every obstacle that came my way with my head high. Thank God I passed through all the challenges and I proved to myself that I deserve to be successful.
Has your career influenced your style?
Ruth Kadiri: Definitely, I would say yes. My career, to a large extent, has influenced my style. Although my present style has always been what I rock, being a role model definitely also has a part to play in it. I cannot attempt to try some styles because I consider what people would think of me as a role model. Constantly being in the public glare does not leave room to be daring when it comes to fashion.
Thinking back, how would you describe your childhood?
Ruth Kadiri: I grew up like every normal kid; though far from being born with a silver spoon. While growing up, my greatest asset was hope.
I learned things the hard way as a child, having great and early experiences, giving clearer understanding of the struggles one has to go through as a child hoping to become someone in life, a lot of obstacles, discriminations, and rejections, high shouldered responsibilities but I thank God for what I am today and what the future holds, all challenges I faced, helped me become the person I am today.
